Credit Platform segment: In the first three months of 2022, Europace increased its transaction volume* by a very substantial 26 per cent. The total volume across all product groups climbed to €34 billion, while the transaction volume per sales day** of €528 million exceeded half a billion euros for the first time. Mortgage finance, which is by far the largest product group, saw its transaction volume grow by 26 per cent to €28 billion. The transaction volume in the second-largest product group, building finance, amounted to €4 billion, a sharp rise of 22 per cent. This growth rate was outstripped only by that of the smallest product group, personal loans, where the volume swelled by 40 per cent to €1 billion.
FINMAS, the sub-marketplace for institutions in the savings banks sector, increased its volume of transactions* by 31 per cent to €3.5 billion in the first three months of 2022. In the cooperative banking sector, institutions used the dedicated GENOPACE sub-marketplace to generate a volume of €4.5 billion, an impressive jump of 47 per cent. Alongside these groups of banks, the volume generated by non-captive financial product distributors and private commercial banks also expanded at a faster rate than the market, with increases of over 20 per cent and 15 per cent respectively.
Private Clients segment: The volume brokered by Dr. Klein* advanced by 34 per cent to €3.5 billion in the first quarter of 2022.
Ronald Slabke, Chief Executive Officer of Hypoport SE, expressed his satisfaction with the Company's start to 2022: "The quarterly transaction volume on Europace exceeded €30 billion for the first time. Back in 2019, we would have needed six months to generate such a volume. This trend reflects our market report on the funding stop for energy-efficient buildings, the risk buffer requirement for banks in respect of residential mortgages, a supposed property bubble and the impact of a shift in interest-rate policy, which we published at the start of February. We have made it very clear that we - contrary to the views of some market observers - do not believe our mortgage finance business models will be adversely affected by these issues. In fact, we anticipate strong growth in 2022. And we have made a good start in the first quarter."
* All figures on the volume of financial products processed (mortgage finance, building finance ('Bausparen') and personal loans) are stated before cancellations and, consequently, cannot be compared directly with the revenue figures shown, which exclude subsequent cancellations. Neither the revenue nor the earnings generated by Hypoport can be directly extrapolated from the transaction figures given above.
** Sales days are defined as the number of bank working days less half of the number of 'bridging days' (days falling between public holidays and weekends).
